Postdoctoral Position in Multimodal Neuroimaging of Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Veterans at VA Boston Healthcare

Job description

A Postdoctoral position in multimodal neuroimaging of TBI/PTSD is available in the Translational Research Center for TBI and Stress Disorders (TRACTS) at VA Boston Healthcare working under the direction of Drs. David Salat and Regina McGlinchey. The candidate would lead efforts to integrate data across several imaging and clinical domains from a large cohort of well-characterized Veterans of recent US military conflicts. Imaging includes data for measurement of brain structure and function (including diffusion tensor imaging, arterial spin labeling, functional MRI). Responsibilities will include data processing and analysis, manuscript preparation, and management of the technical/imaging aspects of the study. The researcher will work in close collaboration with clinical neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and research assistants involved with the TRACTS Center.

Desired skills and experience

Individuals with PhD or equivalent in computer science, biomedical engineering, neuroscience, psychology, or related fields are welcome. Prior experience in brain imaging research and use of neuroimaging software (FSL/Freesurfer/AFNI/SPM) is preferable, however, strong motivation to develop expertise in processing data across imaging domains is critical. The ideal candidate will have strong computing skills to work carefully with large datasets, including expertise in Unix/Linux operating systems, MATLAB, shell scripting, and statistical analysis. A minimum two year commitment (with opportunity for a longer position) is required, and the position is available beginning immediately. Salary will be consistent with levels in accordance with the Boston VA Medical Center policies for postdoctoral researchers. Compensation includes full staff benefits, including health insurance, and vacation time.

Interested candidates should contact David Salat (salat@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu) with a resume and contact information for three references.
